Over time we’ve gathered a collection of sounds from around the world. In an exploration of this immense, continuously changing and growing archive of sound spores, Kinokophone welcomes field recordists, phonographers and listeners to join us for Kinokophonography. Kinokophonography is an evening of sharing sound recordings, exploring the experience of listening and discussing what these recordings and the process of making them can bring to life. Send along a few favorites from your catalogue of recordings to play or just come to listen.
When & Where
Kinokophone collects and composes sounds, stories and imagery from around the world. Kinokophone
take their name from the Japanese word for mushroom. Mushrooms are a product of intricate
connections that lie beyond the surface, with roots in folklore and imaginary worlds, much like the work we produce. In short, our name kinokophone encapsulates what we like to do, which is is to record and communicate ideas with an unaffected sense of wonder for what is growing up around us, unearthing the intertwining connections that lie beneath the surface...
We are a sound and storytelling collective, producing works for installations, sound for documentary films, ethnographic research, oral history projects and anything that we think is exciting and fun!
